We are inviting you to a AHDB/BPOA poinsettia study tour to Germany and the Netherlands focusing on plant breeding, young plant propagation and general plant culture.

Take this chance to visit three leading international poinsettia plant propagators, Beekenkamp and Selecta One in the Netherlands and Dümmen Orange in Germany, to see crops prior to dispatch.

Beekenkamp is a leading international company that produces over 2 billion young plants every year, with a total glasshouse area of 90 ha. They specialise in vegetable and ornamental crops. As part of the tour, there will be a presentation on cutting production at their overseas propagation units.

Selecta One specialises in breeding, growing and marketing vegetatively propagated ornamental plants, including bedding and balcony plants, poinsettias, perennials and cut flowers.

Our third site, Dümmen Orange is located in Germany and concentrates on floriculture crop breeding, with a portfolio of 3,500 varieties of cut flowers, pot and bedding plants.

This is the perfect opportunity to visit some of the largest poinsettia propagation businesses across the Netherlands and Germany. AHDB will cover the cost of arranging the study tour and the transportation costs while in Europe.
